Maxwell beats Elk Creek to end week on a high note

maxwell-vb-91416The Panthers varsity volleyball team completed a three-match road trip last week and were on a three-match losing streak prior to their match-up with Elk Creek on Thursday.

A hard-fought, five-set loss to the Live Oak Lions on Tuesday, Sept. 6, was the first of two tough losses for the Panthers last week.

Against the Lions, Maxwell won close first and third sets with scores of 26-24, 25-23. The Lions struck back by winning the second and fourth sets, 19-25, 22-25. Service errors, which were an issue last week, struck the Panthers again as Live Oak (3-3) took the fifth set for the match win, 5-15.

The Panthers traveled to Orland on Wednesday, hoping to add a win to their record. The Providence Lions’ (4-5) power at the net and from behind the service line were too much for Maxwell. The Panthers lost the match in three sets: 17-25, 14-25, 20-25.

“We haven’t put a complete match together yet. We have a lot of talent, so it’s only a matter of time before we start playing with consistency. It’s early in the season and we are still figuring out each other on the court but we will be ready when league games start,” senior Mallory Mathis said after Wednesday’s game.

The Panthers headed to Elk Creek on Thursday night. Having made a few changes to their line-up, the Panthers fought hard for a first set win 26-24. Success at the net would take the Panthers to a second set victory, 25-17. Elk Creek fought back in the third, edging the Panthers 20-25. Maxwell took the fourth set, 25-18, and capped a week’s worth of away matches with a victory.

Junior Makayla Mitchell played a great game with 4 aces, 2 solo blocks, 4 digs, and 4 kills. Mallory Mathis recorded 4 aces, Madison Miller had 11 digs, and Hannah Azevedo was perfect from the service line.

The Maxwell Panthers volleyball team has a neutral tournament match vs. Paradise Adventist Academy on Friday, Sept. 16, at 10:50 AM.
